The scene in the movie "Trading Places" where Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd profit off of the frozen orange juice markets by using a stolen, as-yet-unreleased US Department of Agriculture report is apparently burned on the brain of officials at the CFTC. The agency has proposed a so-called "Eddie Murphy rule" to ban insider trading using nonpublic information from a government source, but agricultural analysts say that the chance of this happening outside of the movies is extremely slim. The rule could stem from larger efforts on CFTC-SEC harmonization.
